You make the common mistake of most casual observers and assume there was a year 0. It's actually 4003BC.
If that date refers to the first day of creation, I do not
think that date comes very close to the true date. But I
can not say that I know when it was. I have no idea if
anyone at all celebrate this date. I think the Jews believe
one of there Holy days on their calendar, which is the start
of the Jewish civil year I understand, marks the first day
of creation. But that day would fall on different days each
year on the calendar we use. That is about all I have to
offer; but I just thought of something you might want to
check, that is Wikipedia. Maybe there is something there
that would lead you to an answer to your question.
